Bridal Designer Claims Alexander McQueen Ripped Off Kate Middleton’s Famous Wedding Gown!
Did Kate Middleton say “yes” to a stolen dress?!
And before you jump to conclusions, the fashion house is already slamming the allegations as “ridiculous!”
As you may remember, Burton was honored for the gown that boasted lace sleeves, sweetheart neckline, and an almost 9-foot train.
According to The Sunday Times, Kendall claims that the Duchess of Cambridge’s iconic dress would not have turned out the way it did without her sketches she sent in ahead of the wedding back in 2011.
Miz Kendall’s lawyer Humna Nadim said in a statement:
“Proceedings have been issued because our client is certain that her company’s design was unfairly taken and copied. This claim is not against the duchess and there is no allegation of wrongdoing against the palace.”
Not so fast — a representative from McQueen says the company is “utterly baffled” by Kendall’s accusations:
“Christine Kendall first approached us at Alexander McQueen almost four years ago, when we were clear with her that any suggestion Sarah Burton’s design of the royal wedding dress was copied from her designs was nonsense. Sarah Burton never saw any of Ms. Kendall’s designs or sketches and did not know of Ms. Kendall before Ms. Kendall got in touch with us ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ some 13 months after the wedding. We do not know why Ms. Kendall has raised this again, but there are no ifs, buts or maybes here: This claim is ridiculous.”
What do U think of all this dress drama???
